Default digital ammeter install

Trying to install a ammeter on a 06 ds iq! Do I unhook the orange one and use the same wires or run new ones? The positive and ground are marked, but witch wire is ground?

Ammeter or voltmeter? Anyway ~ do not disconnect the OBC warning light. The cart will not work without it .

Scotty, can you please elaborate on the removal of the obc light? I removed mine about 2 weeks ago and used the same hole for a LED meter. I just taped the wires off in the back. The cart has been running and charging just fine. Sorry to jump in Bartman.

Just my experience. More than one customer has told me their cart was not charging or not charging properly with the warning light wires connected to the DVM. There are SEVERAL different OBC versions - so maybe your version is okay?

All you need is a + and - for the meter to work.
You might find more accurate reading direct from the pack.Use your meter to test the pack reading and the reading you are getting from the idiot light wires
